To do the things I ought!
Then let me try with all my might
To mind what I am taught."

Few use the grand prerogative of mind.
How few think justly of the thinking few!
How many never think, who think they do!"

How I wonder what you are,
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky!"

No follies to have to repent;
But reflect on the past, and be able to say,
That my time has been properly spent."

The sweetest and the best;
Matilda, though a pleasant child,
One ugly trick possessed."
